Graham Dunning / Colin Webster – Terrain

Graham Dunning and Colin Webster have worked together since 2014, and to date have recorded six albums as a duo as well as two trio releases with Sam Underwood. Until now the duo have utilised the same instrumentation – Colin on saxophone, and Graham on turntable and additional hardware.
On Terrain, Graham moves away from the turntable and exclusively plays snare drum and objects, often manipulating the skin with motors and fans. Combined with the saxophone, a sonic world is presented and then sustained without much noticeable development. In this respect, the nine tracks of Terrain can be seen as a series of textural studies. This different way of working for the duo eschews the usual rapid-fire dialogue that is prevalent in most improvised music.
